Package features

Unlimited free trial period

We are Shopify experts, which allows us to create stores with unlimited trial periods. Say goodbye to the standard 14 day trial! This means you only need to start paying for a Shopify plan when your site is near to launch, potentially saving you hundreds of pounds.

Theme recommendations

There are hundreds of Shopify themes to choose from, but which one is right for your business? We have tried and tested dozens of them and will recommend a few for you to choose from. Some themes are free some carry a one-off fee of around £140.

Theme customised with your branding

Once you have chosen a theme, we will install and customise it to reflect your brand. This includes adding your logo, brand colour palette and typography. Our Launch package includes minimal customisation. Other packages include more bespoke brand integration.

Products, collections, and menus

All of our Shopify setup packages include training on how to add, edit and manage products, collections and your site’s menu structure. More hands-on help is included in our Grow and Thrive packages to ensure your store has a seamless, quality user experience.

Training on payment gateways

There are dozens of payment gateway integrations available in UK and we will advise on which gateways are the best fit for your business and why. Ensuring you choose the right payment gateway is vital and will your business lots of money in processing fees.

Connect our own domain

Connecting your Shopify store to your own domain means we can setup a holding page while the site is being built, allowing prospective customers to join your mailing list and be notified when you launch. This is included in all of our Shopify packages.

Setup of shipping rates

Shipping is one of the more complicated parts of setting up an online store. Which countries are you going to ship to? Will shipping be free over a certain value? Do you need to calculate real-time rates from your courier? We can advise and help setup the best options for you.

Custom templates

All themes will include templates for products, collections and pages but some are more basic than others and may need customising. This feature involves designing and building bespoke layouts to improve user experience and allow your brand personality to come through.

Migration of your existing store

If you are already selling online, through a marketplace like Etsy or your own website using another e-commerce platform like WooCommerce, Prestashop or Magento, we can help migrate your product and customer data across to your new Shopify store, saving hours/days of time.

Third-party app installations

The Shopify App Store contains third-party apps for just about anything you can think of. We can help research into, install and configure apps for features like product reviews, Instagram feeds, wish-lists, affiliate marketing, delivery date & time, accountancy integration, and much more.

Subscription products

Using a third-party app, you will be able to setup subscription products in your Shopify store. This means you would be ale to offer ‘subscribe & save’ discounts on selected products, offer weekly / monthly subscription boxes, and upsell orders with other products in your store.

Marketplace setup

It’s possible to turn Shopify into a marketplace website like Etsy, which would allow you to curate a store full of products from independent sellers and take a commission on their sales. As this is a very advanced feature, it requires a third-party app, which would carry its own additional monthly costs.
